Pope Francis Said Yesterday That Christians Spreading The Gospel Much The Same As Muslims Waging Jihad

“I don’t think that there is a fear of Islam as such but of ISIS and its war of conquest, which is partly drawn from Islam,” he told La Croix. “It is true that the idea of conquest is inherent in the soul of Islam.” “However, it is also possible to interpret the objective in Matthew’s Gospel, where Jesus sends his disciples to all nations, in terms of the same idea of conquest.”

In an interview published Tuesday with France’s La Croix, Pope Francis argued that Jesus’ call to spread the Gospel differs little from the jihad waged by radical Islamic terrorists

“And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” Revelation 17:4,5 (KJV)

The pope explained how ISIS’ “war of conquest” has bred a non-justified fear of Islam among Western countries:

“I don’t think that there is a fear of Islam as such but of ISIS and its war of conquest, which is partly drawn from Islam,” he told La Croix. “It is true that the idea of conquest is inherent in the soul of Islam.” “However, it is also possible to interpret the objective in Matthew’s Gospel, where Jesus sends his disciples to all nations, in terms of the same idea of conquest.”

Pope Francis went on to talk about his dream of Chrislam, the merging of Christianity and Islam:

“Ultimately, co-existence between Christians and Muslims is still possible. I come from a country where they co-habit on good terms. Muslims come to venerate the Virgin Mary and St George. Similarly, they tell me that for the Jubilee Year Muslims in one African country formed a long queue at the cathedral to enter through the holy door and pray to the Virgin Mary. In Central Africa, before the war, Christians and Muslims used to live together and must learn to do so again. Lebanon also shows that this is possible.”

Every time he opens is mouth, Pope Francis is defending Islam, pushing for increased Muslim migration, speaking against having national borders, and promoting Chrislam. He is the closest thing we have today to a functional Antichrist.

“And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.” Revelation 17:7 (KJV)

  • Leonard

    Lebanon? That’s a real safe haven for Christians who feel they have too many heads…Islam’s idea of living in harmony is for non-muslims to pay an oppressive “jizya” tax, convert to Islam or be executed. Even Francis-The Talking-Pope has to know better than this…

  • Jeryl

    To supposedly be a intelligent man, he sure made an ignorant statement! Peacefully spreading the Gospel is much different than blowing people up & beheading Christians!

    • Ron

      So very True Jeryl! One cannot compare Jihad which is murder and Mayhem, to a Born Again Christian giving The Gospel of

      Our Lord Jesus Christ which benefits mankind in every which way you can think of!

      How Utterly Blasphemous! The same as killing people what an utterly ignorant, stupid, arrogant, erroneous remark!!!

      Only someone who is a fool would say something like that.

      Next they’ll say us protesting abortion is just the same as those who do it!

      The more the whole world distances itself from God the more God turns their wisdom they once had to foolishness and

      causes them to see everything in reverse, right is wrong, up is down, sweet is sour, and so on.

      How will they even be able to rule themselves when The Tribulation happens, oh that one ought to be a 3 ring circus

      with a Hurdy Gurdy Monkey running the show!

      Boy that’s a fact. This guy is so ‘intelligent’ he has brain damage. The more he opens his mouth the more he reveals himself to be an apostate and one of the many anti-Christs

  • Marian

    Let’s see now… how many people have I beheaded while witnessing for Christ? Just can’t recall…

    Of course, considering the murders Bergoglio has reportedly been connected with in Argentina, I understand how he could equate his brand of Christianity with Islam.

      I was raised into this most corrupt evil demonic institution that hides under the guise of Christianity. Yes they have some truths like all the other cults but they are in mega error. Jesus arrested me in 1975 and put me in His prison of love and grace. He rescued,and liberated me from this anti Christ religion that I had that has been passed down from generation to generation.

      Now 41 Years later I.have shared the true lifesaving gospel in many cities and even in a woman’s prison. Thank you Jesus for saving me , using me and revealing the plan you have for my life.A million angels could not express my gratitude that all that I am and ever hope to be I owe it all to The. To God Be The Glory.

      They are embracing the antichrist just as is prophesied Rev. 17, their messages and movements are strictly of him, this is why in 2008, I witness two beast rise, one from land, one from the sea and nothing was ever again the same, see Rev. 13. In 2014, I witnessed a beast tearing from their pulpits, into the pews that were all made vacate, get ye to Jesus Christ. That by 2015, Holy Spirits were showing me the fulfillment of the antichrist reign, the great gathering of saints, and the release from heaven of the stone made without hands. I saw that it, Jesus Reign over all that was left of an entirely decimated western civilization 2010, and again 2015. Whereas the Bride, like Rev. 4-19, is no longer being referred to as earthbound, only as those interceeding from heaven for the Tribulation Saints now overcome. Heretofore, those born again, fret not, STAND, it's as the Angel Gabriel said, 2004, all unto fulfillment.

    Obama & the Pope are mad men. I’m not catholic and never understood their brand of Christianity … It’s hard to believe that the masses embrace them asmen to honor & admire.. It gets worse everyday. Sheep heading to slaughter… The US in a nutshell.

    Does Francis really believe that by playing nice with the Muslims that they’ll forget their threats to kill him and then they’ll give him Jerusalem? Dream on. Appeasement never works; just ask the Jews.

    This Pope is a globalist, a lifelong commie, in other words a fraud, like Obama, Merkel, Hollande, Cameron, Clintons, Bush clan.

  • Larry/vietnamvet1971

    the pope what a False leader…leading Millions to a fate they do not want..but will they listen..Catholicism must be some heavy Brain washing going on…Deceiving people..having to be spoon fed from some one instead of reading the Bible and letting the holy spirit lead them into the knowledge of Jesus Christ.. and he is so OBVIOUS a Fraud..

    • JohnC

      That’s the truth. People stay in Roman Catholicism because they were born into it and it’s easier to stay there than to open up a Bible and learning the truth.

      Very well stated!

    • Tracy

      Agree Larry, it is so obvious, and he (pope) like Obama doesn’t even care, now, what they says, or what we think. They don’t even try to hide it anymore.
      Keep looking up!

  • Alicia NodA

    Supposedly a man of God & doesn’t know the Word of God. And little do Catholics know the Word of God if they think he is a representative of God. False prophet.

  • Donna R Brown

    The Pope’s comments become more blatantly obvious by the day. Are people really so blind?

    • Larry/vietnamvet1971

      YES…for they have Believed the BIG LIE for so long……and NOW it may be to late for them? there is always hope BUT……?

  • COnnie

    This one time I disagree Geoffrey. Obummer has done so much more damage to America than the pope. I still feel he is the anti-christ, being an empath I rely on my instinct. The very first time I laid eyes on Obummer on television I got the most horrid sensation of evil coming from him. I keep looking up for my Lord & Savior!

    • Marian

      Connie, the Pope has at least as much, and some would say far more, power than the US President… and he uses that power worldwide, not just over the billion+ Catholics. If you think of the pope as a religious figure, you have fallen for the deception.

      Just one recent example: Pope Francis, along with Obama, worked out the end of the Cuban embargo. So, tell me what a “religious” figure has to do with international trade?

    • VICKI D LEFEBRE POLLOCK

      He Obama is not the anti christ.He’s one of many, but not THE one. And he is evil for sure, like his father Satan. But some one worse is coming and soon from appearances.This pope will align with the True anti Christ. And he will align with the one world religion which I wholeheartedly belive is Islam. Islam is in complete opposition to God’s word, the Bible. If Jesus said yes, the Koran says no. If Jesus says no, Koran says yes. One of the most evil books ever written. I believe that the Allah in the Koran is no other than Satan.
      Satan always memicks God but by opposite . This pope is positioned to really get in bed with Islam. We don’t serve Allah. We serve God.

      • Ron

        Remember though the antichrist is possessed by Satan at Trib midpoint.

        Of course we are looking for Jesus Christ.

        But if obama is him think How bad he will be when the restraint of the church is gone and if Satan finally empowers him.

        I really believe he is the AC because of remarks said by very powerful elites about being groomed to bring in the NWO

        That was said by Henry Kissinger himself, that says it all!

        God Bless You Vicki!

  • Elijah

    Greetings Brothers and Sisters.
    A “prophet” is defined as someone who speaks for God. This one seems to speak “falsely”. Put them together, then put him next to a world leader who is doing the opposite of what Christ did, and voila! False Prophet and Antichrist.
    Welcome to the last days. Cling to the Lord. Your redemption is drawing closer by the moment.

  • Lilly S. Arnold

    I’d like to ask the pope, when Jesus sent his disciples out to spread the gospel, how many people did they murder???? Oh, none you say, then how can you compare them to the murdering demons of islam?????

    • VICKI D POLLOCK

      They didn’t do the murdering. Instead they were all murdered but for John who wrote revelations

  • Paul said in Corinthians, “Do not be unequally
    yoked!” What does light have to do with darkness?

  • Faith

    If he were talking about the jesuit catholic agenda, then he would have been correct.

    Christians spread the gospel of salvation of Jesus Christ as commanded in the Great Commission of Matthew 28 as we obey our Master. He who speaks against this speaks for his master, the devil. Christianity and Islam are completely opposed since Jesus taught us to love our enemies, while islam teaches to kill your neighbors if they don’t convert to islam. That is in their book that defines their religion; the quran. That is why isis, the epitome if islam in action, creates so many Christian martyrs. It is the furthest thing from a peaceful religion you can find. And a religion is defined by its ‘holy book,’ not a bunch of smooth talking soothsayers. And, pope francis is THEE AC. But time will reveal that as we go along.

    • DC

      Good point, Faith. I’d also include the Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition–conversion by force or death. The Church also stood idly by when the Jews were being killed in the Holocaust. But as for the disciples going out two by two to spread the Gospel vs. Islamic “conversion,” no comparison.

      • VICKI D POLLOCK

        The Catholic Church participated in the slaughter of the Jews for the most part. They received much of the spoils of the dead Jews. Some tried to help and ended up in the camps too.

    • Terri

      He is the false prophet

  • Mountainhiker

    Sounds like for a start, the pope knows little of Sharia Law, even less of Islam and even less of the New Testament. He clearly cannot accept the NT as the Word of God and be pushing for Chrislam!

    • VICKI D POLLOCK

      The pope knows plenty. He is rubber stamping to make it easy for his church to take in. He is God on earth and they have to believe every word that comes out of his mouth. He’s giving them sugar to make it easier to swallow. Feel sorry for them. They have been brainwashed all their lives. Most have never read any of the Bible as they are told not to.

    I am not saying that this guy is the False Prophet, but I have NEVER seen someone try so hard for the position. Every time he opens his mouth it sounds like he is in a job interview for the position of False Prophet. Personally, I don’t think he is the guy. I think he is the guy preparing the way for the real one who will be coming on scene REAL soon.

  • Mary

    This False Prophet will share a dip in the Lake of Fire with Obama for suggesting this new One World Religion! Islam is
    Perverted and should not even be mentioned in the same breath as CHRISTians! Today I heard on the radio that ISIS is crucifying Christians (and others) in Libya, taking women from their homes for sex slaves and generally Beating the men into submission! If yesterday was a bad day, then today just got worse! I am physically ill over the Godlessness of the world! How much more does it hurt our Lord Jesus who sees all and knows what people do in the darkest corners! Even so, come Lord Jesus soon!

  • carson

    preaching the gospel, offering people LIFE, hope, a clear conscience before God/peace, and more…which they are free to refuse and go about their lives as if never hearing…is like conquest?

    But yeah a false prophet might think is so.

  • Robert Warren

    Not true. Jesus did not send his disciples to conquest. He sent them with a message, the Good News. He didn’t tell them that if they don’t believe that Christ came to die on the cross to pay their sin debt, that you should kill them. Any religion that states in their bible that they can kill you if you don’t believe their way should not be allowed in The United States of America. America is in trouble.

  • therelle

    It’s funny how many racist call themselves a christian president Obama isn’t doing no more than the other President s before him and they were white…he has a boss and it is the one with deep pockets the pope is the false prophet of Revelation Obama’s not the Antichrist but is paving the way for the Antichrist. Many president s have laid bit by bit the road to the nwo . .no one gets in power unless you are one of them. We are in the beginning of sorrows and the Gog Magog war has begun.

  • Geoffrey,

    Again you have misrepresented a benign story with a sensational headline.

    Your headline “Pope Francis Said Yesterday That Christians Spreading The Gospel Much The Same As Muslims Waging Jihad” is completely untrue. He did not say that. If he did, please give me the source.

    What he did say is that there is an idea of conquest in Islam just as there is in the Gospel of Matthew. In no way did he say that spreading the Gospel is like Jihad. I would like the whole world to be Christian, but I wouldn’t dream of using the same methods as the Jihadists. Neither would he.

    But congratulations on fooling people with your headlines.

    The Pope is wooing those that will accept his authority, and then othering evangelicals who won’t be wooed to the mother church. He has already condemned fundamentalism of all sorts and thrown evangelicals into this category. Islamic eschatology also had the anti-Christ and the false prophet, and so none should be surprised by a future alliance.

    • Ron

      Indeed! Like when they form Chrislam, the Chr will be dropped and only Islam will remain.

    God’s inspired word teaches that religions, especially those of Christendom, are filled with pagan elements. The RCC is the very first religion of Christendom. It is a mostly pagan religion, created by a pagan emperor, and most of it’s beliefs are pagan. All religions of Christendom have followed suit and retain most of those pagan elements, beliefs, holidays, idols, and teachings. They all teach things that cannot be found in God’s word. No two teach the same thing, and none teach ONLY the ENTIRE word of God, from an accurate translation of it. Check your own religion’s teachings, list them on a sheet of paper, and then find them in a translation of God’s word that isn’t filled with falsely translated words. The KJV has well over 20,000 words in it that are falsely translated. Having been a scriptural researcher for over 40 years, I’ve found some amazing things in all English translations, that most people are surprised to see. For example, God’s personal name is missing in most translations, when in the 5,000 existing ancient texts we have for researching, it occurs some 7,000 times. In the ancient texts, hell appears only once, and it refers to the “common grave of mankind”, and in most translations, it appears upwards of.60 times. Gehenna appears in the ancient texts 22 times, but the KJV, for example, has rendered every occurrence of Gehenna, as hell. That’s falsely translated. Hades and Sheol, in the kJV, are both also rendered as hell, and neither word can be found in it’s pages. The ancient texts have Hades occurring 19 times, and Sheol occurring 71 times. A word translating into “ghost” didn’t exist when the scriptures were written, and doesn’t occur in the ancient texts, but in the KJV ghost occurs 108 times.

    God’s word, in the last book in it, says that if any one adds or takes away ONE WORD of the scrolls, that one will receive the same punishments contained within them. It makes one God’s enemy. The KJV was written by a king, named James the First, who headed up the Church of England in the late 1500’s and early 1600’s, and wanted the Bible he was making to reflect ONLY the beliefs of the church of England. And it does. The Victorian English in it was outdated by over 200 years as well, when it was printed. And no one spoke that way in Jesus’ day or before, because English didn’t even exist as a language then.
